TITLE: Blame It on Vegas
GENRE: Category Romance
Dear Miss Snark’s First Victim,
To fulfill her grandmother’s only — and possibly last — wish, an aimless screw-up blackmails a driven-to-succeed veteran into obeying their long-ago (and nearly forgotten) Vegas wedding vows. Neither is prepared for what happens when acting married turns into the real deal in "Blame It on Vegas," my 60,000-word Harlequin American contemporary romance.
Gwen Duvall is a constant disappointment to her family, except her grandmother. Now, she has a chance to make her grandmother proud, if Gwen can just convince her “husband” to help out. Former Air Force pilot Ross Collins is struggling to save Lyons Industries when Gwen shows up and insists that their divorce (after a quickie Vegas wedding) wasn’t legal. She says she’ll take half of his company unless he pretends to be her husband to please her grandmother and to earn the respect of her family. Ross can’t risk the company he started to honor the man who died saving his life. The agreement the couple come to is immediately challenged by sharing the “honeymoon” RV at a family reunion. Then his company gets swallowed by another, while her grandmother nearly dies. To make it through each crisis, Gwen and Ross turn to each other until they realize that their quickie wedding has become a lifetime of love.
